Chicago is joining in on it. I'm going to try it with my kid. We'll probably read of something.

amy51373 03-28-2008 08:08 PM

I plan on participating and have registered on their site.

Starmie 03-28-2008 10:53 PM

Adelaide is doing it too and I was going to join in. Now I'm going out and don't know what to do - I usually leave the lights on when I go out at night! Guess I'll leave them off. Ironically we're going to see a light show in the city!

?? Care to elaborate?


I work from home and have to work until 9 p.m. tonight, so I can't participate fully, but I can at least turn off all the other lights except for my computer and halogen desk lamp (very low energy usage anyway). And, we use fluorescent bulbs almost exclusively in our home.

Any excuse to light candles works for me!

rouquinne 03-29-2008 05:42 PM

the sun is just setting now here, so it won't be very dark in 20 minutes.

i'm hoping enough lights are off in the city closer to 9:00 and maybe i'll be able to see the stars.

:D

Just talked to my Mom (just outside of Toronto) and she says the whole neighborhood is dark except 1 house!!

We still have another 1.5 hours to go, should be interesting!!!

So it isn't lights off in the entire world all at once? It's just 8:00 p.m. for your time zone?

(Sorry for the dumbass question - I'm sick and my brain isn't working very well.)

Not at all. I had the same question when I first heard about it. It's just for your time zone. Sydney, Australia did it early this morning my time.

Although, the more I think about it, the more of a dumbass question it becomes. :laughing7: And, I'm not even sick. :toothy7:

Yep.

I think if they did it all at once, some people would be sleeping, some would be in the middle of the day and it would kind of lose the effectiveness!

Hope you feel better!

Mamacurl3 03-29-2008 06:51 PM

signing off and shutting 'er down.
enjoy your hour of energy saving peace all!

rouquinne 03-29-2008 07:27 PM

alas, few people in my neighbourhood cooperated...

:(

Lilah 03-29-2008 07:35 PM

We did it here in the country--- didn't make much of a difference though (pretty much as dark as it always is:))

This would be awesome to experience in a big city.

The Golden Gate bridge is supposed to be dark here, and though I can't quite see it from my house, I can see all of SF from the end of my street, so that should be pretty cool if enough people and business participate. I may have to skip out on work to go check it out.

CGNYC 03-29-2008 08:40 PM

Our lights went out so yeah, we participated.

amy51373 02-22-2009 05:30 AM

Just registered to participate again this year. Anyone else care to join!
